united nations, but they do it every year anyway and it's like the whole week of the united nations general assembly is like a progressive dinner party without the progress. and they just go around and around. and i'm telling you, this is a boondoggle. you want to save money, make this meeting every other year because you really don't need it every year. the thing that is interesting about the orrin hatch piece is that they haven't had to do that before to threaten to cut off aid and vote for it in the house or senate because we never walked this far up to the line. the other development today was that abbas, the president of the palestinian authority, said he will not heed president obama's request to not call for the vote. and that is a different dynamic. we'll have to see how that shakes out. >> there was some poll that said four out of ten americans have no opinion on this matter. i'm kind of one of them. for americans, the conflict there is like construction on a freeway. you drive by, it's been going on for years, you never see any progress at all. >> that's what i'm saying. >> it's like it goes

with president mahmoud ahmadinejad appearance before the united nations general assembly. it would seem that iran's dealer ins are trying to court favorable public opinion and try to blunt the inevitable criticism they are going to face at the u.n. about the nuclear program and their human rights record. so, that is probably the reason for the timing of the release. now, we do know from the lawyer for the two men that the bail money or ransom money as some called it wasaid, again, bioman, itself. the reason for that is unclear. ohman is, obviously, a long term and important u.s. ally but why they would hand over $1 million is not yet clear. clearly there probably is some quid pro quo in terms of u.s. support and backing for ohman. >>shepard: we don't know what this is all about, in essence? >>jonathan: we don't know the reason for them paying $1 million. they have not acknowledged it. that is what we hear from the lawyers involved in the case and what we understood happened with the release of sarah shourd last year at $500,000. but, there are reasons that remain unknown. >>shepard

important week coming up, the general assembly for the united nations. talk us through why next week is so important and why we should be focused on what's happening specifically with our ally israel. >> well, this is the week when all the heads of state and government come 20 a-- come to address the general assembly, president obama will speak on wednesday. it's going to be a bad week for israel. number one, we've got the so-called durbay-3 conference which will reamp the declaration reached in durbin, south africa that says israel is a racist state and therefore illegitimate and the palestinians apparently defying the obama administration's wish, they're going to press their resolution, whether in the general assembly or the security council to have palestine quote unquote declared a state and if they run there that through the general assembly they will prevail. so it's a lot of efforts at the political level, at the u.n., to isolate israel, to make life very difficult for it, combined with the strategic uncertainty militarily and politically in the region. i think israel is facing a

john bolton, former ambassador to the united nations and fox news contributor. give us the big picture here, mr. ambassador. you know a lot about how the iranians think when the u.n. general assembly is convening and mahmoud ahmadinejad is set to address this body, all of the sudden the two bodies are freed. why? >> what a coincidence, an amazing coincidence. obviously this is something that ahmadinejad has had in mind, he hinted in it in interviews over the past two weeks and it's intended to give him a propaganda boost to show his good will and humanitarian nature as he addresses the u.n. *pb and doesis his best for the iranian charm offensive during his stay in new york. look, these two people should have been released within a few days after they were picked up, 2 1/2 years ago, along the iran-iraq border, they didn't do anything wrong, they got lost, they were used for political purposes, it was very callous, very political, so while we should be certainly happy they've been released, this is nothing but propaganda on the part of the iranian government. >> and we understand that the bail of half a million dollars each, so a total of a million dollars, was paid to the iranians, a

fuel into the fire here. for an already tense session at the united nations, the general assembly is trying to deal with the palestinian authority's intention of putting in a request for u.n. membership. that would essentially force the world to recognize palestinian statehood without any direct negotiations between the palestinian authority and israel and it's a very dangerous slope as far as president obama is concerned. he spent his time at the podium urging the palestinian authority not to do that. but at this point, there's no indication that they are not going to go forward. the u.s., of course, has that option of vetoing the request outright. it would put an end to it. there's concern that the u.s. does that, there could be a backlash of violence in the middle east so a very precarious situation today. and mahmoud ahmadinejad's arrival here at the u.n. to speak is not putting anyone at ease. that's the latest from here at the u.n. let's take it back to you guys. >> all right, thank you very much for the live report from the east side of manhattan. >> now to the other headlines

. just over an hour ago, palestinian president mahmoud abbas asking the united nations to officially recognize palestine as a state, the u.s. vowing to veto that request. the obama administration had tried to head it off altogether. as we speak, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is addressing the general assembly. let's listen to that, then we'll get reaction from ambassador bolton. >> after all, it was here in 1975 that the age-old yearning of my people to restore our national life and our ancient biblical homeland, it was then that this was braided -- branded, rather, shamefully as racism. and it was here in 1980, right here, that the historic peace agreement between israel and egypt wasn't praised, it was denounced. and it's here year after year that israel is unjustly singled out for condemnation, it's singled out for condemnation more often than all the nations of the world combined. twenty-one out of the twenty-seven general assembly resolutions condemn israel, the one true democracy in the middle east. this is an unfortunate part of the u.n. institution. it's the theater of the absurd. it doesn't only cast israel as the villain, it often casts real villains in leading roles. quaffgy's -- gadhafi's libya chaired the human rights coup sill, saddam's rack headed the u.n. committee on disarmament.

to general assembly, that failed as well. this is this a double defeat for president obama's approach? >> it doesn't lood gook. a key bedrock component has been to breathe light into the united nations. you recall that when we went to war in libya, the administration did not seek approval from congress but did consult and seek approval from the united nations but this episode would seem again to illustrate the limitations of the u.n. does anybody think that palestinian authority would be durable peace between israel and palestinian or more of a symbol that the u.n. can't solve any of the international crisis that occur. >> gregg: how do you think the arab world would react to the u.s. veto? >> some of it is overstated. saudi official, they wrote it would imperil the special relationship between u.s. and saudi arabia. the fact is there is no special relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia. a lot of people around the world think if you solve israel you solve terrorism. think it's backwards. you have external forces that you have israel-palestine unsolvable now that preclude peace at this time. so we should focus on solving those. >> gregg: what do you think if the palestinians denie
